Sprint updates the Galaxy J3 Emerge and LG G Pad F2, and confirms Galaxy S9 and S9 updates we already knew

The U.S. network carrier Sprint may not be on the top of the food chain when it comes to rolling out the latest OTA updates, but it does deliver nonetheless. With the month of June closing in and as Google prepares to release security updates for the new month, Sprint is catching up with software updates for not just one, but 4 different Android devices this week, all of which includes an updated security level.

We already told you about the ARF4 update that brought the June patch to the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at Sprint, but today, not only did Sprint make them official but also shared the changelog which outs rather interesting features we didn’t know. The Galaxy S9 is getting an update to build G960USQU2ARF9 while it’s G965USQS2ARF4 for the Galaxy S9+. We knew that the update pack in security patches for the months of March to June, but today, we got to know that it also packs a performance fix for the IRIS recognition feature, along with a fix for the UFS (Universal Flash Storage).

However, the flagship devices aren’t the only ones from the Galaxy lineup receiving the latest update, as the mid-range Galaxy J3 Emerge is also among the updated devices list. Carrying software version J327PVPS4ARF2 brings security patches from April to June with “other bug fixes”, and there doesn’t seem to be anything particularly new highlighted in the changelog either.

Finally, on the list of Android devices being updated this week by Sprint is the LG G Pad F2, carrying the software version LK46010k. Unlike the other devices on the list, this one doesn’t seem to receive the latest June security update, or at least it seems so from the changelog. However, it does mention that the OTA update includes a GPS time MTK patch which should improve the location devices of the device.
